As for the German outfit, they are currently 14th in the Bundesliga and have failed to win any of their last four league games.
Impressive Sergio Aguero stat
Given the two teams recent form, it wasn’t too much of a surprise that City dominated the opening exchanges of the game.
City’s dominance would eventually be rewarded in the 18th minute as Sergio Aguero put them 1-0 up.
David Silva capitalised on a sleeping Schalke defence and then cut it back to the Argentine.
